Thank you for showing an interest in our nursery at Kaye’s First & Nursery School. We are delighted that you are considering Kaye’s for the beginning of your child’s educational journey. Our popular nursery is a strength of our school, where lots of our values and traditions begin. Nursery works closely with our Reception Class as an Early Years Unit with qualified and experienced teachers and staff. Children can start our Nursery the term after their third birthday.

As a team, we work closely with parents and carers aiming to build strong, positive and secure relationships with each child and their family.

All children are encouraged to explore and grow into independent learners where they are able to take risks in a safe, caring and stimulating environment.

  • In our nursery, we aim to provide a warm, calm and caring environment for our children, where they feel happy, safe and secure.  Where they develop a sense of belonging and grow in confidence.
  • As active young learners, our nursery children enjoy playing and exploring both indoors and outdoors.
  • Through a broad range of planned teaching, child initiated and adult led experiences, we encourage our children to become enthusiastic and motivated learners, confident in developing their own ideas and following their individual interests.
  • We believe that our children learn and develop in a well-planned and organised environment, which offers stimulating and rich play opportunities, encourages independence and supports young children’s own efforts and achievements.
  • We place great emphasis on ‘how’ children learn as well as ‘what’ they learn and aim to foster an environment where a positive mind-set is encouraged through focussing on the processes that children go through rather than the end result or end product.
  • We aim to provide a positive learning environment which encourages our young children to interact with each other and the adults around them through opportunities to talk, listen and share thoughts and ideas, encouraging children to value each other’s thoughts and ideas as well as their own.
  • We believe that the adult’s role in our setting is to model, encourage, question, challenge and support as they observe, teach, guide and interact with each child, encouraging a ‘can do’ attitude for all.

The principles of ‘The Early Years Foundation Stage’ and characteristics of effective learning play a fundamental part in the provision, organisation, planning, observation and teaching in our nursery.The curriculum is planned to promote progress in all areas of learning as outlined in ‘Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)’

We hope that this information gives you an insight into the fun things we do in our nursery to encourage and support your child as they develop to achieve their full potential.
